PUMA's employees up close & personal

Semra Akgun

Manager Foreign Trade, Istanbul, Turkey

I would like to to be stuck in an elevator with my colleague Tamás. When we got stuck in our old elevator in our old building, he never let me get bored or panicked. I think we have the same comical personality. I’d be dying of laughter instead of suffocation.

Ryan Badgero

Product Development Manager, R&D Admin, COBRA PUMA GOLF, Carlsbad, USA

I would love the opportunity to spend time with Pope Francis. I would of course need to brush up on my Spanish as all I remember from school is: “¿donde esta la biblioteca?” Meeting him would inspire me to do good and help others. No matter your beliefs, I think he is a great modern day example of cutting through the political nonsense and focusing on what matters most: People. Plus, I hear he is a Fútbol fan!

Claire Kurtz

Business Partner, Human Resources, Boston, USA

Getting stuck in an elevator is my nightmare! If it did happen though, I have to say I would want to be trapped with my dad. I don’t get to see him very often, so even an extra 10 minutes under less-than-ideal circumstances would be great.

Silvia Korty

Student Textile Management, Herzogenaurach, Germany

I would like to be with my colleagues Alberto and Franco. Their Italian mentality would definitely calm me down and time would fly, because we would have alternately interesting and funny conversations. Also, in an extreme emergency, Alberto always has chocolate, so we would survive at least some time.

Melody Cruz

Product Supervisor, World Cat Limited, Phnom Penh, Cambodia

My friend Claudette. We seldom see each other and when we do find time to catch up, the time is limited. I really like exchanging ideas with her as she is also working in the field of garments. From her, I can learn more about the ways and procedures of a garment supplier. It is not only catching up with my friend, it is also catching up with work!

Ann Amuan

Accounts Payable, PUMA Canada, Montreal, Canada

One of the many people I have in mind is Malala Yousafzai. I think her story is an eye opener to everyone, especially the youth of this generation, that in some parts of the world there are people that are deprived of their rights, even the right to be educated. Choosing courage over fear to speak up for what is right at a very young age is very inspirational. To be stuck with her in an elevator and hear her story personally would be an honour, and one I would share with my 3-year-old daughter.
